Personal:

Pride necessarily sprouts and grows; a pride that can only come from relentless kneading of unwilling flesh, painful months of grinding and burning away all that is heavy, all that is strength-sapping and useless to the body as a projectile. --John L. Parker, Jr., runner/author

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. --Theodore Roosevelt

Rest week to thoughtfully consider fall race plans. Timing works out well because my family is in Michigan this week visiting relatives.

Today, I squeezed in an hour of easy running (7.6 Miles) before a family get-together.

14.1 Miles in 1:47 on a cool morning in the suburbs north of Detroit; from in-laws' house in Troy, I ran south on Dequindre to 11 Mile, turning east through Madison Heights and continuing to Royal Oak, where I turned back north through a nice residential neighborhood, then east on 13 Mile, north on John R. Road, and finally, back east on Maple (15 Mile) to Troy neighborhood.

After a 15+ hour drive home from Michigan yesterday, I managed 4.5 hours of sleep, a little unpacking, two cups of coffee, and 13 Miles in 1:27:29 along the River Trail on a hot morning of 90 degrees (10:00 am).

Despite the heat, it's good to be home after a great family trip.

12 Miles in 1:38:36 on a pretty freaking hot and humid morning in Little Rock; hilly route through Midtown, Hillcrest, Riverdale, and Camack that included tough climb up Overlook at Mile 8. Like yesterday, I chose to run without any fluids, and it worked out fine.

13 Total Miles including one-mile walk with my son at the park.
